Come and discover this artillery fortress built by Henry VIII in 1544 at the seaward end of a coastal spit.  Commanding the entrance to the Solent, the layout of this powerful fort is best understood from the roof of the Tudor keep, also offering one of the best views in England.


Hurst Castle, unusually for a Tudor castle, remained in military use until 1956, playing an active role in both world wars.  On occasion it was also used as a prison, most famously when Charles I in the 17th century was briefly held captive here during the Civil War.


Get a taste of Hurst Castle’s long history during your visit. With exhibitions around the castle and plenty of open spaces to explore it’s a great day out for the whole family.
